Lovejoy couplings, being Lovejoy universal Joints or LoveJoy jaw couplings

Jaw Couplings vs Twin Spring Coupling

Jaw Couplings vs Twin Spring Coupling Jaw coupling is an elastomeric coupling used in a number of different industries, Industrial, distribution, agriculture to power servo motors, pumps or other motors. The Jaw coupling is made up of 3 pieces, a input hub, a insert to absorb shock/vibration (there are 4 types of spider inserts SOX […]

Universal joints by Ruland vs Twin Spring flexible shaft coupling

Ruland Universal joints Ruland universal joints like all universal joint manufacturers all revolve around the same design, so all u joints are the same, some of the internal components are different, the hubs can be made stronger but that also increases the price. The universal joint is all the same whether a friction bearing block […]

Lovejoy Universal joint couplings verses Twin Spring Coupling flexible shaft couplings

Lovejoy universal joints The flexible shaft coupling we will discuss today is the universal joint. Originally invented in the 1683 by Robert Hooke the Hooke joint became the universal joint when patented in 1905 by Clarence Spicer. The Spicer joint then with Spicer’s business partner Charles Dana turned into the current day Dana Holdings. Lovejoy […]

Happy holidays and happy new year

Twin Spring Coupling producers of the revolutionary hybrid mechanical power transmission couplings would like to wish you all a happy holiday season and a joyous new year. Here’s hoping that 2021 is a better year for us all. We are going to be making some announcements in early January about a design change for our […]

Flexible shaft coupling TSC300 replaces BOTH Universal Joints and Jaw Type couplings

Twin Spring Coupling TSC300– Flexible shaft coupling to replace U joints & Jaw couplings The Twin Spring Coupling offers the following advantages over a Universal joint or a L Jaw type coupling. No internal components that need to be greased and replaced when worn Flexible to 35° One-piece design so no bearing kits to replace, […]

Are mechanical coupling bearings contaminants causing downtime and warranty issues for you?

Water, mud, dirt and dust contaminants are one of the many ways that bring flexible mechanical couplings to a halt. Rubber boots, constant greasing and inspections are the usual way used to keep the bearings inside couplings working. That’s part of the ROI but what about the annual cost that adds to keeping your customers […]

Coupling Solutions for Industrial power transmission coupling failures

Replace Lovejoy Universal Joints, Jaw Type couplings and other couplings like Beam and Bellows  With the 24/7 demands on industrial couplings especially now with the COVID 19 virus meaning less service people and OEM MRO supplies are available, the service manager of these industrial companies have decisions to make. How do I get the most […]

Couplings – How old power transmission couplings cant last in the era of Industry 4.0 and Amazon

Flexible Twin Spring Coupling

Power transmission couplings – Universal Joints, jaw type couplings, beam couplings, bellows couplings and elastomeric couplings all suffer from the same design flaws. We have always used them, they are the only things we use, we just accept the annual maintenance cost and failure rate. A common story from manufacturers and distributors, the power transmission […]
